2011 in review | michaeljeans.co.nz

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for michaeljeans.co.nz.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. michaeljeans.co.nz was viewed about 27,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

120 photographs May 2010 – May 2011

2011 Michael Jeans
A compilation of photographs taken between early May 2010 and the middle of May 2011. Not public at present (though about 80% are published here) will see when we see. Quite like the result though. The first of four books due for publication May / June 2011.

Fliss, Louise, Rodney and two men carrying small trees

Two men carrying trees Pauanui December 2010

The second in a series of four Blurb books for publication by 1 July 2011. Getting there. I didn’t make this one; Fliss did. I did take the bulk of the photographs though. This sequence was amusing when I made it – it seems even more so now.

Welcome to our new website!

I have just made a new website. The most satisfying to date. Not flash – not trendy – although it does have Facebook and Twitter share buttons :). Satisfying in the way it works for the person who will manage it and for those doing the reading. The software; WordPress. This site sits on WordPress.COM. Apart from the content (the words and pictures) and a strategy to publish (one post a week, two posts a week?? whatever – a plan of some sort)  the tools 1. a blog at WordPress.COM, 2. an HTML editor called Araneae, 3. and a simple image processor called FastStone Image Viewer. OK, being a photographer I also use PhotoShop – but this is by the by. That’s it; all up cost per year (domain name, hosting and email) less than $52.00NZ.  The time taken to put together a site from scratch – anything from 2 minutes to 40 hours – lets say you are up for at least 15 – 30 hours of reasonably intense work. Q and A back and forth with the client – very much a collaborative thing. Cheers Angela!
